At 8:40pm on Monday night, the 18th of October Married At First Sight debuts on TV and I’m pretty freaking excited.
This is a simple invitation to the bridegrooms of Brisbane to come and make a bow tie, drink beer and play poker. Simple.
This might be shocking news for those that hope to hold a wedding and then never need to do anything more for their relationship: a wedding maketh not a marriage. Read my thoughts on my appearance on Married At First Sight.
The television news shook the Brisbane wedding industry this Easter weekend as Nine News reported that The Bridal Centre had closed down. The shop had made a Facebook post, but it’s since been removed and a new Facebook page rallying the troops/brides has emerged.
Aleisha McCormack, host of the awesome wedding radio show/podcast, Save The Date, recently invited me on to just ramble on about creating weddings that just scream “freakin’ weekend”. In English that means “really cool”.
Shannon and Jeff harnessed the power of lip syncing music videos to tell their friends and family that they are engaged to be married!
A few weeks ago Britt and I asked our couples to start supporting Plan Australia’s campaign to eradicate child marriage. So many people have jumped on board and said yes. It’s so encouraging. Not that you guys would listen to us, that’s lovely. But because it affects real girls, who in their young life have been forced into marriage.
2015 is going to be a great year. I can say that confidently because my calendar is mostly full before the year has even started, which is a crazy and awesome blessing for a small business owner. Britt’s running pop-up weddings around Australia and even internationally.
Shocked by the reality and largeness of children being forced into marriage, we’ve decided to do something, to make a change in this world.
While Britt and I were in New York City last month we caught up with our favourite wedding photographers in the states, Luke and Mallory, and they took a few pics as we hung out for the day.
Speaking to a group of people that don’t have to listen to you is a great honour and as a celebrant I’m lucky enough to do this daily. I never forget the great responsibility I have when I pick up that microphone.
A few holiday snaps from our USA trip!
I’d like to introduce you to a talented friend of mine that makes iPhone wedding films in Brisbane, Australia. Plus she’s giving one away!
I’ve got this thing where I don’t like to do business with people that don’t have the same values as me. It just means that there’s less awkward moments in life.
